Mixed Vegetable Soup

When you have a whole lot of vegetables sitting in your fridge (Vegetable Achar), don't you think you should do something about it? Of course. Especially if you realise veggies are gonna say bye-bye to you soon. Tell me please? Waste not, what not. Let's get going to making this Mixed Vegetable Soup. I don't wanna waste your time because the point of mine is I think very clear already. Lemme repeat myself again. We shouldn't waste ingredients. Period. A vegetarian version (Tomato Rice, Red Cabbage Thoran, Tofu Green Bean Stir Fry, Indian Tofu Curry & Sodhi/Coconut Stew), trust me, vegetarian dish is not only for vegetarians, but for all of us for taking a break from meat (Chick Kut Teh, Ikan Bilis Noodle Soup, Chicken Wanton SoupEgg Rasam & Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup). A beautiful combo for the concept of cleaning your fridge, its a combo of  potato, zucchini, mushroom and tomato, scented by butter, coriander leaves and  bay leaves.

1 large (abt 170g) potato - remove skin and cut into small cubes
1/2 (abt 100g) zucchini - cut into small cubes
100g button mushrooms - cut into pieces (depending on the size)
15 cherry tomatoes - cut into two
1 small (abt 80g) onion - chopped
6 garlic - chopped
20g butter
2 bay leaves
Crushed black pepper - as needed
1 bunch coriander leaves - cut into long pieces
Salt for taste

When butter is heated, saute onion and garlic.
Add cherry tomatoes.
Stir and cook for a minute or two.
Put in zucchini, potato, mushroom and bay leaves. 
Stir and pour about 3/4 litre of water. 
Stir and simmer over low heat to heat through, while at the same to cook the veggies.  
Off the heat, tip in pepper and garnish with coriander leaves.
